When Mendelsohn was preparing to teach an undergraduate seminar on Homer’s Odyssey his 81-year-old father asked to join the classes. In this combination of memoir and literary criticism, the two men explore the epic together and take a Mediterranean cruise to follow in Odysseus’ footsteps. Through the ancient poem’s timeless themes the classicist and retired research scientist come to know each other better and gradually uncover long-buried secrets about their own family relationships.
